Less hilly and grassier than its local cousins, Cherokee Park is mostly open meadows and woods.

This park has a one way street that zigs and zags through the entire park. They took the left land and made it a pedestrian and bike lane. It's perfect for jogging, walking or bicycling if you can handle the steep hills. It's very scenic...More

We only had the opportunity to drive the loop road through the park, but next time we hope to walk some of the trails. Very green.

The park is safe, the terrain is cool you can do trail running or hike or simply run the marked paths. It has some challenging routes/hills but it is not ovewhelming and the loop is awesome for a daily run routine

No fee to get in, and I am with you on the age and all, but we ride/walk and I suggest the fall to do the walk/ride. It is hilly but I suggest to drive it and pick your area, some hills are worse than others.
